This is Mio Hongo of Torchwood Chicago.  If you haven't seen the news yet, there's been a major Rift event this afternoon, at approximately 12 pm.  The Conrad has been destroyed by a newly opened rift.

IF YOU ARE TRAPPED
Please respond here with whether or not you are injured, and an approximate location of where you are, if you know, so rescuers can better find you.  If there are other people in your vicinity that are unable to respond to this entry, please update us with your status as well.

IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF THE CONRAD, BUT NOT TRAPPED
Please respond here as well stating you are all right so we know not to try to look for you.

WE NEED ALL THE RESCUE VOLUNTEERS WE CAN GET.
  If you can fight, bring weapons.  There are a large number of monsters pouring out of the newly opened Rift. We also badly need medical personnel and those who can shift rubble.  Please report to the nearest Torchwood Chicago member when you get to the scene and we will give you a job.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Mr. Soltini -

Is that job offer we talked about still available?

Put your music on shuffle. Post the first lines of the first 20 songs as a poem.

I dress myself in black
Judgement day's not coming soon enough
Aghast amidst the grim procession
Me the hunter, you the prey, I got you in my sight

I'd only come here seeking peace
There's something crawling
So love is a border town abortion
It never felt so real

A grip on you like an addiction
Meet you by the waters
Spit it out, it tastes unfamiliar
Just remember what I said

Meet you by the waters
I'm searching for an answer
Everybody wants to live in a lie
I want you to know that thoughts my mind contains

There's something crawling
Another command to succumb
A grip on you like an addiction
I feel a pressure, a certain kind of need

I feel like doing a bit of cooking tonight.  If there's anything you'd like me to make, I'm open to suggestions.  I'm a fairly accomplished cook, so feel free to suggest something a bit complicated--I could use a challenge.

At any rate, there will be enough to share, so stop by the kitchen around 6:30 if you want food.

Hey boss,

So it looks a situation has come up.  On my way to the New York portal I fell into another random portal to Chicago.  I know, I know, should have used my PINpoint, but old habits die hard.  My PINpoint and cell phone both got busted on the trip over, and the transdimensional card on my laptop is set to go any second.  Unfortunately, it's 2010 here, and you know this stuff isn't early 21c technology, so it's not going to be easy to find someone who can repair my PINpoint.  Luckily there are some members of Torchwood here--I'm hoping Toshiko's experience with alien tech will generalize to PINpoints.

I'm going to try to be back as soon as I can, but just in case I'm not, can you ask Ran to pick up my sword from the house?  The house knows her, so it should let her in if she asks nicely.  Tell Ran she can feel free to raid the tea stash if she wants as well.

If I'm not back in two months, promote Louisa.  She's a bit flighty, but she can handle the job when it comes down to it.  Let's hope it doesn't come to that, though.

Thanks,

Mio

1.  Is it possible for Mio to project emotions and/or images into your character's mind?
[ ] Yes
[ ] No

2.  If you marked no in the previous question, explain why not (psychic shielding, psychically dead, etc.).


3.  If she were to psychically scan the immediate area, would Mio be able to feel your character's emotions?
[ ] Yes
[ ] No

4.  If you marked no to the previous question, explain why not (psychic shielding, psychically dead, etc.).


5.  If your character has psychic shielding, is it detectable as such?
[ ] Yes
[ ] No
[ ] My character does not have psychic shielding

6.  What languages does your character speak?


Thank you!

Edit:  I didn't make this really clear, but in all cases I will check with the other person involved before Mio projects or deep-reads your character.  For even a surface reading I will write into narration that Mio is scanning the area for emotions.  Mio will also only go off of emotional information written into narration, so unless you say your character is particularly happy/sad/hateful/whatever Mio will probably not feel much of anything from your character because she's not that good at reading.

[You die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. --The Dark Knight]

It had occurred to her long ago that she was no better than the people she hunted. Forcing the memories of victims back onto their attackers was no less a rape, just one of the mind rather than the body. The first time she could have been forgiven, maybe—she had been angry that her friend had been hurt. But somewhere in the process she had stopped caring about the people she was "avenging" and started to view the memories of their trauma as mere ammunition in her desire to unleash her anger at the world on a "justifiable target."

[post time-skip. Uh, more on that later.]

A small but growing collection of songs I feel represent Mio. In no particular order; my comments are in parentheses.

1) Within Temptation - A Dangerous Mind
2) Within Temptation - Destroyed (Mio/her mother)
3) Assemblage 23 - Silence (Mio/Misao)
4) The Birthday Massacre - Looking Glass (I'm not sure why this is Mio song, but it just is. Might have something to do with the music video?)
5) Xandria - Beware

There were others, but they're not coming to mind right now.

I was your perfect little doll for 15 years. I ate when you told me to, I wore the clothing you told me to, I learned all of the womanly arts that you felt I needed to become the perfect lady. And yet none of these were good enough for you, because nothing I could do would measure up to Misao's perfection in your eyes.

I hated you for that. So I tried to rebel, like cutting the my hair and exposing my scar, the Hongo family's shame, to the world. I tried to get you to see that I was someone unique, not a poor copy of my sister. It didn't work.

And yet, now that I am away on my own, I find myself falling back into the habits that you tried to drill into me as a child. It seems I cannot escape you, even though I am universes away.

To the soul, there is hardly anything more healing than friendship. -Thomas Moore

What a joke. I would hardly call the relationship my parents have with any of their so-called friends "healing." To them, it's all about the social competition--who can throw the most lavish parties, who can invite the most prestigious guests, who can travel to the most exotic places on holiday, who can buy the most designer clothing. I fail to see any sort of benefit in that sort of behavior.

Besides, friendship is a liability. It opens you up to demands from people, and people always want something from you. I already dislike the demands my parents put on me, I don't need to open myself up to that from anything else.

On Friday at 3 o'clock on the dot Mio leaves work, by 3:15 he has arrived back at his house. He hopes that he has managed to arrive before Ran, it would be impolite to make a guest wait.

((As per the icon, Mio is a boy right now. :D))

It's near the end of the year, so Mio has selected some presents for people to convey her gratitude to various people who have done her favors over the past year. (Also, because it's the socially polite thing to do in Japan this time of year.)

Each gift has been professionally wrapped in the proper Japanese fashion, and for those who can't read kanji, the Nexus Translation field will helpfully translate the noshi (the white paper thing) to read: Year-end gift - Hongo.

For Ran: a gift set of gourmet British teas.

For Nagi: a cake.

For Daimon: a selection of authentic Kyoto sweets.

For Schuldig: a box of Godiva chocolates.

Each gift is hand-delivered to the recipient.
lefthertainted: (mio regular 5)
Knowing that Ran would likely supply the holly and the mistletoe, Mio looks for something else that would be easy and cheap to supply. (While it would be easy to buy a fruitcake, cake was much too expensive to buy for someone she hardly knew, even if it was (supposedly) to stop robots from blowing up the Nexus.) Jingle bells looked like a good bet. The local drugstore probably had some.

On the same aisle as the jingle bells were also boxes of strange tubes called "Christmas crackers". Hadn't that man with the scarf said something about those? At any rate, a box of 12 was only a couple of dollars so Mio figured she might as well not. Mio took the box as well as the bag of jingle bells and made her way back home.

Having never heard of Christmas crackers before this, Mio has no idea what the proper way to open them is, so she ends up disassembling them rather than pulling them open in the proper fashion. The collection of bad jokes she receives are as follows:

What do you call a penguin in the Sahara desert?
Lost.

Who hides in the bakery at Christmas?
A mince spy.

What's white and goes up?
A confused snowflake.

Why was Santa's little helper feeling depressed?
He had low elf-esteem.

On which side do chickens have the most feathers?
The outside.

Did you hear about the man who bought a paper shop?
It blew away.

What do you call Santa's little helpers?
Subordinate clauses!

What do you get if you eat Christmas decorations?
Tinsilitis!

What carol is heard in the desert?
O camel ye faithful!

What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire?
Frostbite!

Why do ghosts live in the fridge?
Because it's cool!

Why did the turkey cross the road?
Because he wasn't chicken!


Looking through the jokes, Mio couldn't decide which of them is the worst (were any of these even supposed to be funny?) so she decides to take all of them as well as the jingle bells back to the Doctor.

Today is Mio's 17th birthday! She hasn't announced this to anyone, but those who have managed to find out about it anyway can congratulate her here. :3
lefthertainted: (mio regular 1)
Mio just got her first paycheck a few days ago, and she needs to buy more clothes besides her one outfit and her school uniform. She figures she'll call Ran-san to ask her for directions to the Nexus Mall so she can do some shopping.

Ring ring Ran-san!

Mio is in the filing room, busily matching receipts and invoices to POs and checking them off on some sort of list. Her previous annoyance at this project has been replaced by a fierce determination to make everything is done properly and efficiently.
lefthertainted: (Default)
Basic research suggests that Mio has a Scorpio personality--revenge seeking, holds grudges, suspicious, unable to let things go, uses her powers to benefit only herself and steps on other people in order to satisfy her own greed, etc. (none of those were very complimentary at all, haha) Can anyone who has more knowledge of Zodiac signs give me a thumbs up/down on this analysis?

Also, for those muns who have chosen birthdays for their pups, is there anything else that would be a good idea to consider besides Zodiac sign or should I just pick a date at random within that range (October 23 - November 21, in this case)?
lefthertainted: (Default)
Mio stretches her arms in an attempt to loosen some of the tension in her shoulders. She'd been working on this filing project for nearly a week now, and she was finally almost done with sorting all of the papers. Mio mentally sighed in exasperation for about the thousandth time since she'd begun this project. Seriously, it was like someone had just tossed all of this paperwork in the boxes without even bothering to do any preliminary sorting. It was extremely unprofessional, she didn't know how they managed to stay in business with accounting that sloppy.

Mio finishes the stack that she had been working on and glances at the clock. 5 til noon. Time for lunch. Mio gets up and heads for the break room.
